Another Democrat Jumps Into Race for Ohio Governor

Todd Portune (D) told WCPO that he will challenge Ed Fitzgerald (D) in a Democratic party primary for governor of Ohio in May.

"Fitzgerald's campaign to challenge Republican incumbent John Kasich hit a rough spot late in 2013 when his running mate for lieutenant governor, State Senator Eric Kearney withdrew from the race under pressure surrounding poor vetting. Even with that bump in Fitzgerald's road, he has somewhat of a head start against Portune. Fitzgerald officially kicked off his campaign for the state office on Aug. 24."
